We love to stay at Embassy Suites properties when our schedule allows us to take advantage of the breakfast and manager's reception. This time we were only looking for a reasonably priced hotel for a quick 2 night stay, but still wanted a little "splurge'. We arrived before official check-in after traveling for more than 14 hours. We were pleasantly surprised to not only find our room ready, but it was the nicest Embassy Suites room we've stayed in for quite a while. Ate lunch at the restaurant (don't remember what we had, but it was excellent) changed clothes and went outside to try to nap by the pool...found a nice selection of available lounge chairs, both in the shade and sun. After a pleasant couple hours went out to check-out the beach (beautiful) and then returned to the grounds for Happy Hour(s). Again, one of the best we've had at Embassy Suites for a long time...better than usual selection of drinks (but the appetizers on a par with the rest...I know everyone's trying to make do with less, but I do miss the Embassy Suites appetizers/snacks of old). My first complaint of the day...since there are so many birds, it would be wonderful if either someone cleaned the outdoor tables at the beginning of the evening, or if a spray bottle of cleaner and paper towels was available for use.
Breakfast next morning was great, with the only complaint being, again, the dirty outdoor tables. Unfortunately we had to be gone all of this day, but returned in time for Happy Hour. Additional complaint (again the tables were not cleaned) was that there were more people, but only one bartender this night, so lines were long. We were told that this was the first night to try 1 bartender...didn't seem like the right night, since there were more people than the night before! Anyway, long waits for drinks.
Ordered room service, which arrived quickly, and again, good food. Next morning breakfast was more crowded, but we were fine with it. 4th time, however, that I made a trip to the restroom to get papertowels to clean the outdoor table. I'm sure some are thinking..."why not just eat indoors?" Well, eating outdoors is something I look forward to whenever we travel to warmer climes, as we don't do it often at home.
The hotel grounds are beautiful...I get tired of commercial enterprises having the same old landscaping. I wish I had had more time to enjoy the landscaping at Mandalay Beach Embassy Suites!
